Carl Quick's LiteWieght 2240
So for about the last 24 months, I've had her on a serious diet. Now I am happy to
report that she lost nearly 13 ounces and is feeling so much better. And let me
say one thing, when I pick her up with one hand now she is light as a feather.
Well, almost a feather.
Things I have done so far:
OEM main tube was lightened by me.
Barrel is OEM and trimmed down by me.
Main tube plug is made of Delrin by me.
Gas cap is aluminum, comes from HPA and bored out by me.
Hammer is made from Delrin by me with a modified 1701P striker.
Valve is an aluminum Disco rear end with a brass Pro-Top by Anthony.
Trigger grip frame is aluminum by Bluefork Design and then hogged out by Gregg.
Front barrel band is aluminum, made by Anthony, drilled by Rich and milled by me.
The biggest factor in making ME not linearly proportional to barrel length...August 12 2011 at 3:16 PM

Response to As you say, only the barrel length info:
...is the fact that pressure usually drops rapidly as the charge expands behind the pellet.
So the energy contributed by the last inch of bore is generally much less than the energy contributed by the first inch, simply because the pressure - and therefore the push - behind the pellet is higher near the breech than near the muzzle.
